Renovating your kitchen is a home remodeling project that can have a high return on investment. Regardless of whether you’re doing a complete overhaul or just replacing critical appliances, this project is one of the best ways to increase the appeal and long-term functionality of the kitchen space.
Overhauling the kitchen, however, is one of the more pricier endeavours on your home remodeling list. That’s why it’s important that you plan your budget carefully.
Plan the Labor Costs
Labor takes up between 25% to 35% of your remodeling project. This may seem like a considerable amount, but it’s vital to the success of your project. Just like roof repairs or installing solar roofing, remodeling a kitchen is complex work. Swapping out appliances may be simple, but there’s considerable work involved when you’re changing lighting, ventilation and even updating the static fixtures.
When you’re working with a home remodeler, you’re entrusting your project to a team that’s experienced and has all the necessary equipment to ensure a successful remodel. You save more by hiring a contractor since you don’t need to source and purchase your own equipment. On top of that, professionals can get a better deal on the materials you may need to use.
Next on the list are your static fixtures, which are the cabinets and countertops. They take up between 25% and 20% of your budget respectively and should be a priority over things like lighting and secondary fixtures. This is due to the fact that they both serve as decorative and functional components of your kitchen.
These are things that, while important, are less of a priority. These include things like flooring, lighting and decorative fixtures. Keep in mind that if you’re doing an aging-in-place kitchen remodel, you may want to allocate funds for the lighting over the others.
